This project is a narrative detailing the author's personal account of life as a survivor of sexual abuse in the state of California. Victimization, age, emotional abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, coping, the field of social work in relation to social workers as sexual abuse survivors, and transference were explored. Based on several topics reviewed of related literature, a narrative was written. The narrative will introduce the reader to the struggles faced by a sexual abuse survivor in the search to regain mental control of her life. Findings from the narrative were similar to experiences of other sexual abuse survivors on lifetime journeys. Discussed was the author's experience as they pertain to the creation of her own narrative, along with many social work practice implications.
